Life-weary Clint rejects country music stardom in Nashville and returns to his humble roots with his young sons. Clint’s simple life grows complicated as he contends with problems in his small town while trying to manage his feelings for Jo, a charming local woman with a golden voice. Jo’s life is busy, she has no patience for men, but she is likewise drawn to Flint. Can Flint help Jo find her dream of stardom? Will the two allow romance to lower their defenses? Using a measured and self-assured tone, narrator Stephen Bel Davies embodies Flint’s jaded and gruff persona. Although he performs in third person Davies sounds like Flint, so listeners actually feel as if they are listening directly to this straightforward main character.
Hard-living musician Flynn "Flint" Clinton has left heartache and his wild ways behind in Nashville, returning to his sleepy hometown of Northfork, North Carolina. There he hopes to start a new life as owner of the Stardust Caf, relaxing and raising his two preteen sons in peace and quiet. Then Flint meets the colorful, indomitable Joella Sanderson, a blond bombshell who serves a mean cup of caffeine at the Stardust - and whose amazing voice belongs at the top of the charts. Jo's catchy comedic ditties and radiant energy captivate the coffee shop regulars and even threaten to transform the cynical Flint, who finds himself reluctantly rediscovering the joy of music. With Jo by his side, Flint can once again appreciate a beautiful melody and strum his guitar with the same passion and pleasure that once filled his life. But in Flint's world, trouble is never far away. This time it arrives just as he dares to open his heart to the possibility of true love.
